Quebec will provide $163,900 in financial assistance for the Kiskimaastakin hunting and fishing camps.

The assistance will be used to develop an outfitting establishment in the LA-1 reservoir sector at James Bay and will result in the creation of 10 seasonal jobs. This outfitting establishment will offer caribou hunting, fishing adventure, and eco-tourism activities. “The market for this type of business is expanding rapidly in Northern Quebec, and our region is considered a choice destination for hunting and fishing,” said Michel Letourneau, Minister for Native Affairs and the Development of Northern Quebec.

For his part, Richard Legendre, Minister responsible for Wildlife and Parks, said that he was “very happy to support this outfitting establishment project, which is in line with the government strategy to promote the economic development of resource regions and which will offer a new product that appeals to clienteles from both Quebec and outside Quebec.”
